There were a total of 37 swings at racquets. 8 of those swings (22%) got the ball out of the ball carrier’s racquet.
The team that was carrying the ball came back up with the ball 5 of those 8 times, so the ball only changed possession 8% of the time.
In 5 of the 37 swings, a penalty was called against the swinger, 14% of the time.
The link below is to the spreadsheet that shows the count for each team, swinging and carrying, each section swinging and carrying, and for each individual player swinging and carrying.
Normally, counting the swings indicates that it is better to never swing. However, Ryan Strider, only swung at a racquet 1 time during that game. He got the ball out of the ball carrier’s racquet, and Ryan’s team got possession of the ball. So Ryan was 100% as getting the ball out of the racquet, and 100% at causing the ball carrier’s team to lose possession. The next closest was Andy Baker with 67%. He swung 3 times and got the ball loose 2 of those times. However, he never caused the ball to change possession, and he had a penalty called against him for one of his swings.
